A better learning experience on mobile. Better tools to enhance student engagement. A more modern, intuitive interface. Welcome to Brightspace, a new learning management system (LMS) being introduced by Western which will change the learning experience for the campus community.   

Brightspace will power Online Western Learning (OWL), the core learning platform for the university. 

The system is being introduced by Western in partnership with software company D2L Inc., developer of Brightspace. 

The new LMS replaces Sakai, the platform which has powered OWL at Western for over a decade. Western uses OWL to manage and deliver undergraduate, graduate, continuing studies and human resources courses for the entire Western community.
